The Catamount 



Volume VIII 



Foreword 



Doorways well symbolize the phases of a student's life. The 
blue Dutch door at home is the joy of family reunion, the lux- 
ury of holidays and of summer vacations, and the spiciness of 
Mom's cookies. The portals of that "little red school house" 
were passed through all too quickly, and the novitiate stands 
under the ivied arch, hesitantly eager, on the threshold of 
another world, that of the campus. 

The columned entrance to the Administration Building 
may recall that first day on the Hill, the rhythm of typewriters, 
the shivers over a dissection, the mad rush to beat the bell, 
a tete-a-tete on the stairs, Thespian aspirations, and meetings 
of the sororities and the fraternities. 

The austere double doors of Davis Hall and the classical 
pillars of Reynolds may remind the student of dorm parties and 
dates, bull sessions and pin-ups, receptions and teas, catnaps 
and alarm clocks, cramming for an exam, or term paper head- 
aches. 

The Gym's romanesque door may stir memories of fast 
moving Catamounts, classes in calisthenics, or the swirl of skirts 
to the lilting notes of the dance. 

May the pictorial memories through the doorway of the 
1946 Catamount be sources of pleasure and an inspiration to 
aspire nobly toward the portals of the future.

Our Thanks 



The editors and the sponsor gratefully acknowledge the 
cooperation of the administration and the faculty in the pub- 
lication of the 1946 Catamount. 

We acknowledge with deep appreciation the helpful sug- 
gestions of Mr. A. R. Haddock of Jahn and Oilier Engraving 
Company, the cooperation of our printer, Mr. John F. Rose of 
the Herald Printing House, and the time and patience of our 
photographer, Mr. Coyd Yost. 

To our boosters and advertisers we extend our unreserved 
appreciation of their loyalty. 

The greater number of snapshot pages this year are the 
result of generous contributions from students other than staff 
members and from Mr. Albert Wilhide. Mr. Edged Greyson 
was most helpful in procuring film for the staff photographers. 
To them, our thanks. 

The successful publication of the Catamount VIII is due 
largely to the industry of a large and energetic staff and to 
the wholehearted cooperation of the student body. They have 
our thanks and appreciation for their loyal support.

III*. Mriiosl K, f'liiiwli 



To Dr. Ernest E. Church, in tribute 
to his ten years of service as the energetic 
and progressive president of Potomac State 
School of West Virginia University and to 
his dynamic leadership in both educational 
and civic affairs, we dedicate the 1946 
Catamount. May this slim volume express 
the appreciation of the faculty and the stu- 
dents for those qualities of wisdom, sin- 
cerity, and sympathetic understanding that 
have merited the respect and liking of all 
who know him.

What a change from last year! And the year before, and 
the years preceding that one. Then, with the invitation to 
write a brief statement for The Catamount, came the thoughts 
of war, of Potomac State men and women around the earth — 
on land, on sea and in the air, willingly sacrificing for great 
principles. 

Today, 1946, all that has changed. Gratefully we welcome 
home those who had been called to duties on distant fields, 
or we sorrow for those who will not return. We face the future 
with optimism and plan for a better Potomac State. 

We are glad that we maintained unbroken the tradition 
of The Catamount. It has meant much during the years of war. 
It will mean more in the challenging days of peace. We think 
the 1946 issue will depict brighter faces, reflecting lighter hearts. 
To The Catamount staff and its sponsor we offer our congratu- 
lations and a most sincere Thank You for the splendid service 
performed for the college. 



Deairs Message 

The Catamount, as a result of its ex- 
cellent accomplishment in the presentation 
of facts about the school, both in picture 
and story, should be placed in the category 
of a history. 

Preceding editions, with the present 
one, have preserved a record of students 
and faculty serving on both the Campus 
and in the Armed Forces during the late 
National Emergency. All are indeed proud 
of these records, and justly so. 

We express our appreciation to sponsor, 
who have contributed their time and talents 
ments as presented in the 1946 edition.

the arrival of 136 freshmen, of whom Paula Wil- 
liams scored high in the English test and Fiances 
Costello in the psych exam. The increase in the 
number of men students, including fourteen vete- 
rans, was a source of delight to the co-eds. 

September 14. Fifty-four sophomores lord it 
over tlie timorous freshmen. Classes begin, and 
we welcome Miss Gertrude Hall, head of the Home 
Economics Department, the only new addition to 
Hie faculty. 

September 1!). Reception for students in the 
Gym. Names were mangled and hands, too, — or 
nearly so. We had fun though. 

September 2.>. The effervescence of the under- 
classmen was somewhat curbed by the appearance 
of Freshman Rules. The sophomores, remembering 
last year, are in high feather. Of course tlie fresh- 
men love the back door. 

October ... Kangaroo Court convened and did 
not adjourn until a considerable number of naughty 
freshmen had been severely sentenced to dire pun- 
ishments: Paula to a bird cage; Sites to charwoman 
chores; Pople to pigtails; Boor to book-toting in a 
bushel; Yodei to Alla-ing, et cetera, ad infinitum. 

We began having our "pitchers took" for the 
Catamount. Mr. Yost's "birdie" was occasionally a 
bit. slow in appearing. 

To introduce the various campus activities to 
tlie freshmen, the Sigma Phi Omega, under the 
direction of Dr. Nancy M. Miller, sponsored its 
annual impressive "Know Your Organizations" 
convocation. 

October 11. Mrs. John McLaughlin reviewed 
Sinclair's Dragon Harvest for the opening session 
Oi Miss Shipper's Folio Hook Club. 

October 13. After an unusually well-filled Rush 
Week, fraternities and sororities were busy adding 
up the scores and announcing their pledges. 

October 24. The "soft, harmonious" strains of 
the Davis Hall Choir pervaded the auditorium as 
me highlight, of the student talent convocation. 
What masterly costuming ! What consummate ar- 
tist i\ ! Remember Hartman — both of them? Cotney? 
(lough? Levine? 

October 27. Music from "Tink" Atkins's Or- 
chestra, attractive decorations, (how Sieve did 
work!) colorful gowns, fragrant corsages, and happy 
couples tossing confetti combined to make the sea- 
son's first formal affair, the newly revived Theta 
Gamma Harvest Swing, an outstanding success. 
Ruth Ashenfelter was the graceful Harvest Moon 
Queen. 

October 2!>. Fratornifs and sorority actives 
entertained their pledges at parties. The Thetas 
and Gammas went to the Blue Ja\ for the evening 
while the Phi Sigs and Sigmas selected Mott's. 

November 7. Robert Kazmayer paid his fifth 
annual visit to Potomac State. 



November <». Having survived the rigors of 
mid-semester exams, the students made their hesi- 
tant, way to their advisors to learn the worst. Whal 
were those two-pointers worrying about? 

November 10. Auld Lang Syne, plans for a 
memorial building, and reviving memories featured 
the return of the old grads. With Johnny Horn's 
slick orchestra providing the inspiration and Lois 
Ruf as Miss Catamount VII. the Homecoming Ball 
was a huge success. 

November 14. Bio students are having pet trou- 
ble again; they dropped the poor dear — turtle. 
Such gross carelessness ! Now it is the sleek and 
wily Elmer. 

November 17. The talented editor of the Pas- 
<|iiino decided to listen to wedding bells anil today 
Miss Puffenbarger became Mrs. .lesse Whitfield Cow- 
gar. May she live happily ever after! 

November 22. Oh. boy! Pack a bag, grab a 
train, and we are off for four long-anticipated 
days at home with turkey and all the fixings, we 
hope. Who savs we have nothing to be thankful 
for? 

November 2<;. One vacation ends, but another 
is not. far in the oiling. The Catamount Staff goes 
into a fine frenzy of arranging composites to meet 
their deadline. Famous last words: Purinton 'way 
up on the water tower: "Who's that man in uni- 



Deeember 5. Jennings Randolph was the guest 
speaker in convocation. 

December t>. Everyone tossed books into a 
corner and went to see "Tom, Dick and Harry." 
•Veren'l those cerise highlights interesting in the 
dream sequences? Foster was superb as the papa. 
and we can still hear bells. Bet Paula can, too. 

December 12. Fragrance of pine and spruce, 
gay lights, brightly wrapped packages, and merry 
faces attest to the pervading Yuletide spirit. We 
even have some new men on the camnus for Christ- 
mas gifts: Laffey. Walsh, Keller and Porter. Hoo- 
ray ! Everybody is having a shindig of some sort, 
even the facultv. Mistletoe (says Gallina) is his 
favorite "flower" and he carries it with him and 
makes hay while the sun shines. Corp. Leonard 
Withers has been on the campus: he will be with 
us asrain next year. 

December 13. Mary Catherine Martin and Da- 
vid Boslev reigned over Winter at the sparkling 
Sigma— Phi Sig Jingle Bell Hop. 



December 17. The Singers presented tin 
1 program of beautiful Christmas Carol 
■ning. The candle-lighted procession w; 



thi 



■cember IS. In the hilarious rush to get 
everyone is too excited to be annoved by the 
)f luggage and the crowded traveling condi- 
The first peace-time Christmas in five years!

Since L922 when Phi Sigma Nu was founded at Potomac State School, the fra- 
ternity has been an active social group on the campus. 

This year Phi Sigma Nu with Sigma Epsilon Chi sponsored the seventh annual 
Jingle Bell Hop honoring the King and Queen of winter. The Starlight Swing, a 
spring formal, and many informal parties marked other high points of the school year. 

Phi Sigma Nu holds the Dean's Scholarship Trophy which was awarded last 
year to lb'' fraternity maintaining the highest scholastic average. Phi Sigs take active 
part in other campus organizations, sports programs and all campus activities. 

Phi Sigma. Nu demands of its members scholastic achievement; high moral stand- 
ards; loyalty to Potomac State; interest and understanding between college students; 
and above all the establishment of a lasting bond of friendship between members 
of the fraternity.

Starting with its organization in 1924, Theta Sigma Chi has been an important 
organization on the Potomac State campus, and its members have long played an 
important part in all activities of the school. The ideals of the fraternity are the 
promotion of fellowship, high moral standards, scholarship, and social betterment. 

Socially the fraternity had a successful season. In October, the annual Harvest 
Swing dance was held honoring Miss Ruth Ashenfelter. The annual Spring Formal 
was also a success. As part of the Homecoming celebration the fraternity spon- 
sored, as is its custom, the election of Miss Catamount VII, which honcr was won 
by Miss Lois Ruf who at the Homecoming ball was presented with a rose bouquet. 



Year after year, the Theta Sigma Chi fraternit;

Sigma Phi Omega 

This .year Sigma Phi Omega, Potomac State's honor society, begai its activities 
with nine active members. Because the full membership quota had be|n elected last 
spring, no new members were initiated at the beginning of the school year. 

The first contribution of Sigma Phi Omega to the school's calendar of events 
was the presentation of the sixth annual Know Your Organizations program in con- 
vocation, at which time all campus organizations were presented to the student 
body. The corresponding Recognition Day Convocation will again be held in the 
spring, with Sigma Phi Omega as the sponsor. The formal initiation service and 
party followed by the annual banquet in honor of the new members are again on 
the year's roster of activities. 

Throughout the year Sigma Phi Omega loses no opportunity to foster scholarship 
and to promote participation in outstanding campus activities.

Homo I >oi5o.ni<s 
Club 



The Home Economics Club was organized in 193(i. Its purpose is to provide 
opportunity for personal development of the members, for service to school and to 
community, and for active participation in improving home and family living. 

The course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science at West Virginia University 
if so desired and is planned for those who wish to teach or for those who merely 
wish to learn the business of home-making. 

Membership is based purely on interest and consists of those students participat- 
ing in the courses of design, clothing, and food. The clothing class applied the prin- 
ciples of design to craft work involving weaving, knotting, stenciling, and renovating. 
They also constructed garments according to a color scheme which was suited to 
the individual. The cooking class prepared meals which they served to members of 
the facultv.

The Women's Athletic Association was organized to popularize women's ath- 
letics at. Potomac State School and to foster a high standard of sportsmanship. 

The aims of the organization are: to develop an intramural program broad enough 
lo meet the interests of all college girls; to develop standards of leadership and 
sportsmanship; to promote those activities which may be adapted to the leisure time 
of after-school life: tennis, swimming, hiking, bowling, archery, skiing, skating; to 
encourage the adoption of health concepts that will improve habits of living; to pro- 
vide opportunities for college boys and girls to enjoy sports and games together. 

The motto of the W. A. A. is "A sport for every girl, and a girl for every sport." 
When a member has earned a certain number of points, she receives a pin and. 
union earning additional points, mav obtain a school letter.

Engineers' Chili 



The Engineers' Club, organized in 1931, has remained active throughout the 
past fifteen years. During the war its activities were considerably curtailed. This 
year the club' work was revived in its entirety. Since the purpose of the organization 
is to acquaint the students with the different fields of engineering, prominent engin- 
eers °ave lectures to the group throughout the school year. Motion pictures and field 
trips "to local industries comprised a satisfactory sequence to the professional atmos- 
phere surrounding this important phase of college life. The meetings were usually 
concluded with informal chats with the visiting engineers.

Potomac State relumed to intercollegiate basketball this year after four seasons 
of inactivity entailed by the war. The Catamounts featured a fast moving quintet 
in their opening contests, and the varsity, composed of clever ball handlers and 
accurate marksmen, gave a good account of themselves. The Lough-coached machine 
played through a twenty-two game schedule, one of the toughest ever participated 
in by a State squad. Coach Dana G. Lough had to shift the line-up of the Cats many 
time's, due to the draft, but returning G. I.'s saved the daw Potomac State again
